Staff found all aspects of the day exceptional. There was a suitable balance between the theory and the practical ideas, the resources which were used to exemplify the teaching and learning were fabulous and Alex’s delivery was just inspiring.

 

We have undertaken follow up sessions ourselves and all staff have implemented many of the approaches discussed. The quality of work produced by the children reflects how well they are enjoying their topics.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the day thinking about continuous provision and how we can incorporate it into our way of teaching and learning. Alex’s knowledge and passion for the curriculum was inspiring and all teachers are now using ideas in the classrooms.

Grand Curriculum Designs is a pioneering programme for curriculum leaders, enabling real and sustainable school improvement through practice-focused professional development.

 

 

'I now see the value of collecting baseline evidence and the different ways of evaluating impact…it's not just about vague feelings and gut instinct'.

 

'We're not just talking about a prescribed list of subjects on a timetable but something which shapes pupils' futures and impacts on their lives in substantial and meaningful ways'.

A pioneering new professional development programme for school leaders and other educators, Grand Curriculum Designs has been recently piloted with twenty schools. The programme will provide schools with the skills to design curricula that are flexible, innovative and responsive to the needs of their students and communities.
